Ruby 1.8.7 automatically loads RubyGems?

Does Ruby 1.8.7 automatically load gems? I took -rubygems out of my
RUBYOPT, and discovered my gems were still getting loaded. Is that
true?

$ ruby -v
ruby 1.8.7 (2008-08-11 patchlevel 72) [x86_64-linux]

Did you remember to do that in an active shell (with the command “unset
RUBYOPT”) or did you do it in your .profile (or .bash_profile or
.bashrc)
and expect it to take effect immediately? If you edit your .profile, it
doesn’t take effect immediately – you need to log out and log back in.
If you edit your .bashrc, you need to open a new shell (and .bashrc is
the wrong place for environment variables anyway).

It is clearly coming from Gem, but not via RUBYOPT.

Is there another way for RubyGems to get loaded automatically?

Damn you Wirble !!!

Yes, .irbrc was the source. Thank you. (In hindsight I should have
tried ‘ruby -rfacets’. That would have made it obvious. Oh well.)

On the upside, I upgraded Wirble, and while I was at it, hacked it a
bit to make it better.

Thanks for the help, guys.

http://spiralofhope.com

in #save_history changed:

lines = Readline::HISTORY.to_a.uniq

to

lines = Readline::HISTORY.to_a.reverse.uniq.reverse

so that the most recent lines remain.

And for now I also got rid of the use of yellow, since I can’t see it
on a white background.

Is there a conical repository? I would like to fork it and do a little
more work besides, maybe add some extra options.
